First new sail arrived: NP H2

My brother Wouter wanted something new, to replace his Gaastra Plasma technora 8.3. This gaastra plasma was his favorite sail for a long time, the behaviour fitted perfectly to a weekendsurfer.

Soo it was hard to make a choise, my positive experience with the RS:Slalom MK3 made us doubt between H2 and RS:Slalom MK3... The gaastra plasma is a very strong build sail, my brother likes some extra strenght, soo we chose the Neilpryde H2.

Now I have seen the sails profile and it seems each year the performance difference between RS:Racing- RS:Slalom-H2/V8 gets smaller. The H2 should be very good when just looking at the sail rigged.

We used a arrows 460 mast, this one we still had. I think the bendcurve should work good.

  1. Sails profile looks nice, but i'm not sure if i like these (new)colors, looks bit "lolly pop". Maybe in real world it looks better.

    Are the Ultra Cams a lot smaller then the Ultra Cams in the RS:S/ Evo II.

  2. I checked the cams yesterday, it is totally the same system!! Also the size isn't much different, my RS:Slalom was not near otherwise I would have measured
